Though the specimens of this plant in the Linnean Society's Herbarium exhibit
neither fruit nor flowers, we have thought it right to give a description of the spe-
cies, which is not nearly related to any other with which we are acquainted within
our limits, except the following, to which it is apparently very closely allied, though
quite distinct. It is also, to all appearance, very near 0. macrojthytta, Blume (EL
Javaj), from which it differs chiefly by its smaller leaves, which are more silvery and
less hairy beneath. Its' evident close relationship to that species induces us to trans-
fer it from Uvaiia to Guaiteria, a step which we should otherwise have hesitated
to take till better materials were available.                                                               /
